This West Loop spot is doing globally-inspired small plates - just like 8,932 other restaurants in Chicago. The menu is eclectic, with goat tostadas, crispy sweet potatoes in a curry broth, and sweetbreads. It has some hits and some misses - the tostada and the sweet potato dish are fantastic, but the sweetbread dish includes “root beer stewed prunes” that seem unnecessary and taste terrible. Everything is affordable enough, though, that if you order a couple of clunkers, you won’t be devastated. Plus, the menu seems to be changing often. There aren’t a lot of casual, small plates places like this in the West Loop, and we suggest checking it out for drinks and a light bite if you’re in the neighborhood. But walk, don’t run.
